Re: I made my digital transition in January of this year.
This is the reason (at least) ATT and Comcast have bandwidth caps. They are anticompetitive and someone with balls in the US government should investigate and stop it.
Oh, I forgot where we live. All three branches of our government are corrupt and the only "people" they work for are corporations.
Re: a tad too far
Will this be done to the tune of 'Mr Tangerine Speedo'?
Hopefully the Freenetproject folks get right-to-left text support finished soon. Something tells me Iranians will be a large userbase soon.
Nice Firefly reference! :)
I sure hope they don't copy any of my mp3's... The RIAA will sue the U.S. Government out of existence.
Blacklists don't work.
How about a kid friendly Internet on top of the Internet? .kids or something like that. Have approved websites have a simple DNS redirect. So nickelodeon.com becomes nickelodeon.kids which seamlessly works when the kiddies type in nickelodeon.kids. It would be trivial to make a web filter proxy that only allows only .kids domains.
Then all the nanny groups can get together and decide what gets let in. All legitimate websites with content aimed at kids would scramble to get "approved".
Perhaps the pilot was one of the uptight religious folks that had a hissy fit over Dogma and finally saw his chance to get back at him? A long time to hold a grudge I admit, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities.
Um, how can he help prepare his defense?
Surely he must be allowed to assist in preparing his legal defense? Not likely to do that nowadays without the internet.
There are no standard systems
Why do some sites limit the length of fields or what characters can be in them? We're told to use special characters but many sites won't let you.
The man sneaking chemicals through the scanner was fat enough to hide a pound or two of high explosives in his fat rolls. Neither infrared (shown here) nor mm-wave technology (the current panacea) would catch that.
Now imagine if someone was obsessed enough to have the explosives sewn into their body.
Spacebook friend request
How long before someone gets fired for non-productivity due to surfing the web all day instead of working?
Box up your belongings and we'll escort you to the airlock, sir.
Mine's the one with the stapler embossed "ISS" in the pocket....
Won't someone think of the kids?
Just wait until some blurry pic of an adolescent makes it onto the internet. Instant outrage. Until then, meh, people are sheep.
Welcome to the underground down under
This is why software like Freenet http://freenetproject.org/ is going to be crucial in the coming years. It is not a proxy like TOR, but allows access to material found objectionable by some (which will be decided by the lowest common denominator. That is where these bans head.) The material cannot be taken down and access is anonymous.
It's a good think the Amish don't use the Internet. ;-)
It's a start
Microsoft can start whittling away the dependencies by stripping out the DRM, hidden Internet Explorer hooks and publishing "all" the APIs.
Mark is a very smart man, I attribute a good portion of the improvements of 7 over Vista to him. His SysInternals utilities are an invaluable asset to any IT professional that has to work on Windows machines.
Sounds like a request.
Google should preemptively oblige him. He's the CEO asking to opt out of Google News, who has more authority to request this for his company than him?
